Preparing to use AngularJS

  1. Install AngularJS. You can do it in two ways:
  2. Install and enable the AngularJS plugin.

    The plugin is not bundled with IntelliJ IDEA, but it is available from the JetBrains plugin repository. Once enabled, the plugin is available at the IDE level, that is, you can use it in all your IntelliJ IDEA projects. See Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins for details.

Installing AngularJS Manually

  1. Download the AngularJS framework at
  2. Configure AngularJS as a IntelliJ IDEA JavaScript library, to let IntelliJ IDEA recognize AngularJS-specific structures and provide full coding assistance:
    1. Open the Project Settings dialog box and click JavaScript Libraries.
    2. In the Libraries area, click the Add button.
    3. In the New Library dialog box that opens, specify the name of the library.
    4. Click the Add button add next to the list of library files and choose Attach Files or Attach Directory on the context menu, depending of whether you need separate files or an entire folder.
    5. Select the Angular.js or Angular.min.js, or an entire directory in the dialog box that opens. IntelliJ IDEA returns to the New Library dialog box where the Name read-only field shows the name of the selected files or folder.
    6. In the Type field, specify which version you have downloaded and are going to add.
      • If you added Angular.js, choose Debug. This version is helpful in the development environment, especially for debugging.
      • If you added the minified Angular.min.js, choose Release. This version is helpful in the production environment because the file size is significantly smaller.
